What Fresh Hell Is This?

Connecting The Dots

As I was perusing The Trib this morning (the online edition, of course) I found this column by Professor Donald Boudreaux.  I was intruiged by his examples of early blogging.  Looks like his blog is even older than this one!

Imagine that.

Here's how The Trib describes him:
Donald J. Boudreaux is a professor of economics at George Mason University in Fairfax, Va. His column runs twice monthly.
And that's it.

So I googled him.  And it's interesting to see his Scaife connections (beyond his twice monthly columns at the Trib).  Take a look:

Please note that the amounts listed in the parentheses are the amounts Scaife's foundations have given to those institutions NOT TO BOUDREAUX HIMSELF.

I'm not saying that Scaife paid Boudreaux upwards of $3.4 million.  I am saying that along with being an econ prof at the conservative George Mason University (and Scaife donates generously - $250,000 in 2010 - to that University's foundation as well) Boudreaux's been attached to some serious right wing think thanks and those serious right wing think tanks have taken some serious Scaife money ($3.4 mil, in case you forgot) over the years.

AY-und, he has a twice weekly column in Scaife's newspaper.

That's all I'm saying.

This is how the right wing noise machine works.

Do Scaife, Heritage, Trib-Rev dominate your slumber time as well as your waking hours?

Why not rename your blog "SCAIFE WATCH"?

Fixation, Is that you and the right wing

I think right wing is a pergorative in your lexicon?

So let's kick it up.. Make it "Right wing cabal"

Scaife...Heritage Fndn ... Trib-review. RWC

rather than just Scaife...do the whole RWC. watch..

Epiphany ..like David Horowitz...and come into the light
